Schools across America don’t need Common Core or its invasive testing component to dig deep into a student’s personal and family life.
Public-school systems have been awash in a culture of privacy-destroying data mining for years, say experts on student privacy.
The recent bombshell reported by MassResistance.org showed that students as young as 13 or 14 are being given surveys asking their sexual orientation, how often they have sex, whether it is anal, oral or vaginal sex, how often they carry guns or other weapons, and the list goes on.
“This is obscene,” said Boston radio talker Jeff Kuhner, host of “The Kuhner Report,” which did an hour-long show on the survey earlier this month.
Kuhner was talking about the popular “Youth Risk Behavior Survey,” which is given to children in Massachusetts schools, grades 7-12, as well as schools across the country.
The main reason the surveys are given is to create misleading “statistics” that are used by radical groups from Planned Parenthood to LGBT groups, which use the data to persuade politicians to give more taxpayer money to their organizations – and let them into schools to help solve the “huge” problems that the surveys reveal, according to Mass Resistance, which has filed a bill in the Massachusetts Legislature requiring written permission from a parent and requiring schools to show the surveys to parents before subjecting students to them.
“It is a very emotional appeal, and millions of dollars are budgeted on the basis of these very questionable surveys,” the group says on its website.
